New York/San Francisco-based content creation/production company Bodega signs award-winning creative director/director Ben Orisich for U.S. commercial and broadcast promo representation.
Orisich has helmed multiple Super Bowl spots and national campaigns for ESPN, NBC, NASCAR, IZOD, Indy500 and ABC, among many others. With his extensive background as a director, creative director and VFX artist, he will usher select productions from inception through final delivery in addition to being available for director-only projects.
Says Orisich, “I’ve been friends with the Bodega and Northern Lights family for years, and have also worked with them as a client many times. They understand better than anyone that working tirelessly to collaborate ego-free with clients is how the best work is created. It’s also how you have the most fun. I’m thrilled to officially be a part of this highly creative team.”
Comments executive creative director/partner Adam Reid, “We couldn’t dream of a better addition to the Bodega team. Ben is a creative force of nature with a genuine enthusiasm for collaboration.” Adds EP Clint Goldman, “Ben knows how to wear a fur coat, smoke a Cuban cigar and drive a Lamborghini better than any man I know.”
With nearly 20 years of experience in live-action, VFX, design, editorial and finishing, Orisich brings a vast understanding of the creative process to every project. The Atlanta-native cut his filmmaking teeth at top New York VFX houses, working as a sought-after Flame artist and motion graphics designer before opening his own VFX shop, Home NYC. He then transitioned to directing live-action and VFX-laden campaigns as a client-direct freelancer and out of Original Films.
His recent accolades include a ’12 Emmy®-nomination for his Indy500 opening teaser, as well as a ’12 Grand award and ’12 and ’13 Gold awards for Directing at the New York Festivals Awards.
